SOURCE: How do I replace the Speed Control Knob on the K5 Kitchenaid Pro

Hi PETER, Happy New Year! Your Speed Control Knob can be replaced quite easily (OK, maybe with a little effort) by yourself, if you are a DITY type person, feel adventurous, and your mixer is not under warranty.
Before you start taking your mixer apart, be sure you have the Parts List manual on hand. If you're lacking one, you can download a PDF version from the KA website at: http://www.kitchenaid.com/flash.cmd?/#/page/home.
Click on Customer Care>Locate Manuals & Guides> Enter the 6 character model number, in your case use KSM50P (Your K5SS mixer falls within this manual), and select the first file KSM50P.pdf (438.31 KB) listed under Parts List (4) and then check to verify this matches your mixer model.
Your speed control assembly is attached to the bottom of the top part of the mixer’s head (or Illus. No 1, Gearcase Motor Housing, on pgs 4 & 5).
Turn to pages 6 & 7, titled: “Motor And Control Parts”, which provides an exploded view for the disassembly and reassembly of your mixers electrical components, along with all the parts. Locate lllus. Nos. 1, 2, 3, 4 - Pivot screw, Spring Washer, Switch Lever and Stud, and Control plate spring, respectively, which is the speed control handle assembly and Illus No. 5 and 6 - Speed Link & Cam and Flat Spring. Carefully inspect these parts to see if they have not come loose, particularly the Pivot Screw and Spring Washer. Also check to see if the Speed Link & Cam hasn’t shifted from its position. You should be able to see if something just needs to be tightened or if parts need to be replaced.
Also, with your mixer apart you can check for any other unseemly wear and tear on the gears, etc. It can be messy but quite gratifying to diagnose and repair your mixer yourself.
As far as parts go, here are five potential vendors in no particular order: RepairClinic.com; mendingshed.com; searspartsdirect.com; partstore.com; and Grainger.com. Prices can vary widely between vendors, so do your comparison shopping.
Finally, here are some links to several excellent websites that detail the disassembling/reassembly of a KA Mixer. The mixers displayed in the links may be different than your KA model, but the principles are the same.

Between these three websites and their excellent pictures and descriptions and your Parts List manual, you should now be able to completely disassemble and reassemble your mixer, should you decide to go that route.
If you feel this repair is beyond your capability, then I would seek out a local small appliance repair shop in your area. KA Customer Care can give you names of local KA authorized repair shops in your area, but you can also do an online search to supplement what KA may provide you. Call to explain your circumstances and find out their hourly rate and get an estimate of what they think it would cost to repair your mixer. Also, always obtain three or more estimates – do some comparison shopping.
Good Luck. I hope this helps. Howard, Burke, VA

Speed control knob becoming stiff and hard to adjust speeds


Not being able to see inside your mixer and know to what the speed control is connected; whether it is a simple potentiometer or to a mechanical linkage or to a rheostat, the best advice I can offer is get it looked at by a competent person sooner rather than later and have any replacements or adjustments carried out.

Not only do you have the control knob to think about, which are rarely any stronger than they need to be and could be broken by using more force than it was designed to cope with. A replacement might not be easy to obtain.

Inside, the erratic stiffness could be caused by something almost seized or almost broken and it is unlikely to be any cheaper or simpler to repair by leaving it longer; quite the reverse in fact. In some cases leaving it until it finally breaks could destroy the electronics inside if there are any or if the speed control is by a rheostat, breakage could leave wires carrying mains electricity free to short out, blow fuses and generally make smoke and sparks.

Needing the black plastic knob on the speed control lever for my Kitchenaid Professional 6 model #KP2671XOB


It is correct that the knob is not separate from the shaft it is attached to. If they are obsolete then hop into your local Kitchen Aid retailer and see if your missing knob looks same or similar to a current model, if so order for a current model, lever the knob off the shaft (carefully) and tap it onto your bare lever. I use a soft faced hammer for this. These folks here should be able to help if you are USA based. http://www.searspartsdirect.com/

Looking for the black plastic knob on the speed control for my Kitchenaid Professional 6 (KP2671XOB) stand mixer


Fashion another knob out of something similar looking and bond it onto the shaft with epoxy resin. Think of another appliance that may have a black knob on it....a toaster knob maybe. A knob off an old fashioned heater control in a car.

Knob for kitchaid stand mixer


I am assuming you mean the little black knob on the speed control has broken off. I will post the solution for that problem.
The speed control lever on KitchenAid mixers has a little black knob on the end (in some cases this may be white or gray). The knob is pressed onto the lever, so if the knob breaks off your only option is to replace the whole lever.
KitchenAid has a kit that will include all you need to replace the speed control lever. It even comes with instructions. Here is a link to the speed control lever kit on our website: http://www.mendingshed.com/kaleverkit.html

The lever kit includes the speed control lever (with knob), speed link, spring, instructions and a gearbox gasket.


The instructions will only walk you through how to hook up the speed control lever, so if you also need a little guidance in taking the mixer apart, and reassembling it please use the KitchenAid service manual. The manual will walk you through all of the repairs you may need on your mixer, including how to take the mixer apart and put it back together. Here is a link to the service manual: http://lib.store.yahoo.net/lib/mendingshed/kitchenaidservicemanual.pdf

Remember, The Mending Shed is a Authorized KitchenAid service center, we can help you with any repair needs for your KitchenAid appliances, plus all of the parts we carry are genuine KitchenAid brand.

Speed control lever stuck or locked. How do I unlock it?


Hi BROOKLYNX. To answer you primary question, no there is no special speed control knob lock that you?ve inadvertently triggered. OK, so without a lock why?s your speed control knob stuck? It most likely that something broken inside your mixer to lock it into position. I wouldn?t continue to operate your machine as you are doing. It?s not good for the electric motor, the electric cord or the plug. It would be better to determine the root cause of your control knob?s obstinacy. The inspection and troubleshooting of the inside of your mixer is a DITY capability, particularly if your mixer is out of warranty. Just be sure to have the Parts List manual on hand. If you're lacking one, you can download a PDF version from the KA website: http://www.kitchenaid.com/flash.cmd?/#/page/home. Click on Customer Care>Locate Manuals & Guides> Enter the 6 character model number, in your case, try K45SSW, and select one of the files listed under Parts List (check to see it this matches your mixer model). Turn to pages 6 & 7, titled: Motor And Control Parts, which provides an exploded view for the disassembly and reassembly of your mixer, along with all the parts. You?ll want to focus on part #s 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6, which is our speed control assembly. Check to see if something isn?t blocking you?re the movement of #3. You should be able to determine if something has broken. If something has broken, you can order replacement parts and install yourself. As far as parts go, here are four potential vendors in no particular order: RepairClinic.com; mendingshed.com; searspartsdirect.com; partstore.com. Prices for the same part can vary widely between vendors, so do your comparison shopping. Once apart you can check for any other unseemly wear and tear on the gears, etc. It can be messy but quite gratifying to diagnose and repair your mixer yourself. Finally, here's a link to an excellent site that details the disassembly and replacement of a mixer's grease, which might be helpful, too. http://www.foodonthefood.com/food_on_the_food/2009/04/how-to-repair-a-kitchenaid-mixer-yourself.html Good luck and have fun.
